I had nothing to say
so I said… nothing

I turned the other way
just in case
my soul was watching

Reflection off of the blank screen
a silhouetted profile

I had something to say
but the words wouldn’t flow

I had something to say!
But there’s nothing to show

My soul, dry
My muse, absent

Not even a postcard
of hope
to get me through

So I make do with nothing
And turn nothing into something

I stare back at the screen
as it stares at me
and summon forth
the tiniest drops I have left

And spin them
Coddle them
Beg and bend and plead

And write


We all start
from nothing
